For the first time in this series, we are going to hear about how to make money blogging.  Clare from My Money Cottage is going to tell us how her side hustle and how it makes her money.  You can check out the rest of the series here.

Side Hustling #10 – Matched Betting

After an expensive couple of weeks, I’ve discovered a renewed motivation to get my side hustle on.  Therefore, I’m really excited that it is time for another edition of my Side Hustling series.  This week we hear from another fellow blogger talking about one of my favourite side hustles – matched betting.  I need to get back to this one!   Tell us a little about yourself My name is Grainne aka WannaBeDebtFree (which is a bit easier to pronounce, to be fair!). I started my blog last year when my partner and I decided to pay off our £16k debt in one year because we were sick of the stress of being in debt. In July this year, we officially became debt free and are now saving for the future; an investment property, our wedding, and just to have something to fall back on. These days, my blog is…

I cannot believe that it is time for part 8 in my Side Hustling series.  This week we hear another excellent interview with Jane from Shoestring Cottage.  She tells us how changes in her family situation presented her with a money making opportunity.   Tell us a little about yourself My name is Jane and I live in north Essex with my partner Justin and 2 cats. We have 3 grown up daughters. I blog at www.shoestringcottage.com about about getting off the consumer treadmill, growing our own food and living a truly wealthy life through frugality and simplicity.   I also write about how we make extra money to enable us to do the things we love to do.

Side Hustling #7 – Story Selling

This series surprises me week after week.  I think I know most of the ways there are to make money then I interview someone else and learn something new.  This week is no exception as yet again I have found a new way to make money from home.  I’ll hand over to this week’s interviewee to share more.   Tell us a little about yourself Hello, I’m Fiona and I blog at www.savvyinsomerset.com. I live in Somerset with my husband and baby daughter. My biggest strength when it comes to money saving is slashing the cost of groceries – I do everything from using coupons to raiding the yellow sticker shelf last thing at night and this means we eat really well on a tight budget. Money saving aside I love quizzing, drinking cocktails and eating pizza.   What’s your side hustle? In the last few years I’ve managed to…
